It's more usual, sadly, to notice or comment on negative aspects to life and people. I'm always glad to give credit where its due though. In the spirit of this I'd like to present DGS1's teacher Mr X. During the lockdown he's gone far above and beyond what could be expected. He's a man with a young family of his own all locked down with him. However, each morning, immaculately dressed he's there for the zoom classes which are attended by 24 children (and their onlooking mums!). The classes are lively and interesting. The basics are covered but, also, various projects are suggested that really pique the children's interest. Written work is submitted online and rapidly returned marked. All very good. DGS1 just soaks up the education he's receiving in this way. There's something else though: Mr X has an alternative persona. In this guise, on each child's birthday he makes up and sings a little song about them. He professes to know nothing about this other persona! He's hilarious, kind, engaging and the children are distraught that he won't be their teacher any more next academic year. An ornament to the profession.
DGS2 is not so lucky. His teacher is OK. She does what's required but no more and unsurprisingly, DGS2 isn't much interested in school work.
Some people just have it!
